Oscar winners 2017

The 89th Academy Awards took place on Sunday evening at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, and 

This year’s ceremony was presented by US comedian and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel is to host the 2017 Oscars ceremony, but there was a big blunder during the final award, which will definitely be the talk of the night.

LA LA LAND was announced as the best film winner, but then had to hand the award over to MOONLIGHT after a mistake was noticed in what was the most dramatic moment in the history of the Academy Awards.

In extraordinary scenes, the LA LA LAND team were halfway through their victory speeches, when it was noticed that the wrong film name had been read out by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway after there was a mix up in the envelopes – and MOONLIGHT was the winner.

Definitely a heartbreaking mixup for all of those who were involved in LA LA LAND, but it must be said, they handled the mistake with grace. MOONLIGHT also won adapted screenplay and best supporting actor.

It wasn’t all doom and gloom for the musical LA LA LAND, as it did win six Oscars including Best Director and Best Actress. Damien Chazelle became the youngest filmmaker to win a best director Oscar at the age of 32 for LA LA LAND.

Emma Stone was overwhelmed with emotion as she won the Best Actress accolade, which she received from last year’s big winner, Leonardo DiCaprio.

Last year’s winner of the Best Actress accolade, Brie Larson, was at hand at this year’s ceremony to honour Casey Affleck with the Best Actor award for his performance in MANCHESTER BY THE SEA – and this time around, he remembered to thank all of his family.

Mahershala Ali won best supporting actor, for Moonlight and he delivered a lovely speech where he thanked his wife, telling the audience she gave birth to their daughter four days ago.

Best supporting actress went to Viola Davis for FENCES, directed by and starring Denzel Washington

The film is an adaptation of August Wilson’s play of the same name.
